I think it's just a phase. All 3 of mine did it at one point or another and I think it's just that they are pretty new and when they realize that it make a noise when they grind them it's just something that they like to do for a while because of the whole cause and effect thing. I tried my best to ignore it, which was hard because I HATE that sound, lol. But if I made a big deal about it at all they thought it was funny and did it more. So I either ignored it completely or tried to distract them with something else when they did it, a game or toy they liked or something to eat or drink if it was about that time anyway. It didn't last long and didn't hurt their teeth at all.
